Just like the SD40-2 in "Unstoppable" that had 6,900HP......
That AT&SF Alco looks brand new, wow!
Superb, that silver striping looks phenomenal!
We're getting good mileage out of BNSF FAN's thread here. Some classic stuff out there on vintage TV.
This morning's episode of Highway Patrol was Hired Killer and it begins with a stellar view of Es on an Espee passenger train with water tank in background. The next scene includes the rear cars from which the bad guy is seen stepping off and finally some footage of the Chatsworth, CA depot.
Whoa, nice! Looks like an E8 in the front, with an E7 B-unit?
That is so cool!!!
One of my favorites is Highway Patrol episode 129 Train Robbery.
A train robbery in the 50's?!
TV's Cannon had an episode called Death Is a Double-Cross first shown in 12/1971 that has some Santa Fe, although it's early Amtrak. The Director isn't a fan though, as the shots are all edited so as to cut out the first five seconds of what could have been good shots.
I am a big fan of William Conrad from his radio days. He did a great job in Gunsmoke.
This was on yesterday, not sure but think it was the open to the movie The Gambler
Looks like it was moving pretty good too!
From last night's episode of The Fugitive. Notice that they painted out "Pacific" on the SP RS-11, leaving only "Southern". The SOU should have sued the show's Producer for his insinuation that the SOU caters to escaped convicts.
From a 1974 episode of Cannon I happened upon. SDP-40F 504 was one of the first built.
When I was ATM at Mt.Clare yard in Baltimore we had a box car that had been shipped from Shapiro Recycling that had been loaded with compacted rags that was on fire. BCFD responded to the scene and undertook extinguishing the fire. By the time they completed their task every rag that had been loaed in the car had been dragged out of the car and was thoroughly drenched on the ground. While they did fight the blaze in the car, every time they put out flames on the face of a surface and pulled that surface away, the fire was still existent in layers beneath the outer face. Layer by layer the contents of the car ended up on the ground surrounding the car. Didn't help that it was a 95+ degree day with humidity to match.
No - the fire would smolder it way beyond each layer. When a new lay was opened to 'fresh air' what had been smoldering would burst into flame and the process would be repeated, time after time after time.
From this past weekend. Don't even know what western this was from. Just grabbed the phone and took a few pics.
What I like are the pictures with the Closed Captioning on, as I use it ALL the time. Shows our age Wonder why it is called Closed Captioning? I wasn't sure if it was Close or Closed so I Googled it
As seen on a 1972 episode of TV's Cannon was this super cool automobile carrier. It looks like a toy. That blue car is an old Mercedes. It falls off the rear in a later scene as Frank Cannon gives chase to the rig.
